Beauty Talk: Most Popular Ways To Remove Makeup


Yesterday, I had a kind of a poll on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook where I asked everyone what their favourite way to remove makeup was :)
Man! Fabulous response everyone, thank you!





Here are the 5 various most popular ways people remove their makeup:

Rank #1 - Cleansing Oil/Butter/Gel (14 votes)


This probably is not a surprise to most of us. Cleansing butters, gels and oils have been around since a while now but they have recently started coming into the mainstream. However, it still has a long way to go since the brands that offer these cleansing gems are clearly not drugstore.
What are Cleansing Butters/Oils/Gels?
I am a huge fan of The Body Shop Nutriganics Cleansing Gel Oil and The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter. In the polls, people have also mentioned cleansing oils and butters by Mac Cosmetics, Avene, Clarins and Bobbi Brown.

Rank #2 - Oil/Petroleum Jelly (13 votes)

This is probably the most effective and cost effective solution to removing one's makeup at the end of a long long day. Honestly speaking before I discovered cleansing butters, I would use Olive Oil and Baby Oil to remove my makeup as well... It just seems to melt away your makeup... The only downside of using oils and gels to remove makeup is that it needs to be followed up by a cleanser or a face wash else you are left with quite a lot of oily residue leaving you feeling not refreshed.
In the polls, the most popular oils mentioned were Almond, Olive, Coconut and Baby Oil. Tarannum even mentioned Sesame!




Rank #3 - Micellar Water (7 votes)

I expected Micellar water to get a little more votes really but well honestly, I myself am not a huge fan of Micellar water... I started using the Bioderma Micellar water since I came back from Italy but I am just not feeling it... It's too much work, too much product and it kind of stings my eye :(
However, it does leaving you feeling refreshed after you've used it to remove your makeup no doubt and I guess that is one reason that it is number 3... Another popular way to use it is to apply it after using an oil or vaseline to remove your makeup... It could act as an expensive replacement of rose water :P

Rank #4 - Makeup Remover

The good old makeup remover had to feature in this list now didn't it? Let's be honest, we all started with makeup removers as the ultimate product to help you remove the last bits of your makeup at the end of a long long day... It's been around long before fancy micellar waters and cleansing balms made their way into our kitties, isn't it :) People still use it, my sister for one still swears by her Neutrogena makeup remover and the fact that is ranked 4 in popularity goes to show that a lot of gorgeous women out there prefer it over other means.

So whats your take on removing makeup? Does your method feature in the list above or do you have a different albeit unique way of getting rid of makeup?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Sexist Remarks We Women Tend To Ignore (But Shouldn't!)
This post has been long due...

Every now and then I come across a sexist remark, sometimes intentional, sometimes not and it makes want to write about it... But life happens, I push the remark to the back burner just the way we are conditioned to in order to prevent a confrontation or more likely to "free" our minds for more "important" things and hence the "writing" never happens...
